When NBC Sports Network teamed Michelle Beadle with Dave Briggs to launch The Crossover, their hope was to duplicate the chemistry that had made Beadle a household name in the sports world alongside Colin Cowherd on SportsNation.  Their hope was that Briggs could become the perfect foil for Beadle and the two would make must see TV for the cable sports upstart.   NBCSN's hopes evaporated almost immediately as it was apparent Beadle and Briggs had the chemistry of Connie Chung and Dan Rather.  Briggs was axed after just a few months and the show was completely revamped and focused around Beadle.  The split seemed good for everyone involved - Beadle got the sports show she wanted and Briggs recently resurfaced on Sports Dash with Carolyn Manno as his co-host. When Briggs & Beadle parted ways, it was apparent the chemistry issues between the pair were not just an on screen phenomenon.  Today that was taken to a whole new level with Beadle blasting Briggs on Twitter for taking a shot at The Crossover's cancelation. With The Crossover getting the knockout punch today, Briggs endorsed a tweet from a random parody account that said "Dats what she gets fur being a B ta my guy @davebriggsTV" Nice Camaraderie @nbcsn No wonder you got booted. @davebriggstv @crossover @MichelleDBeadle @awfulannouncing pic.twitter.com/cI0KiFOMlj — Ivan Calderon (@chicorican) September 25, 2013 After seeing the exchange, Beadle not only posted a screenshot of the Briggs tweet herself, she didn't mince words in referencing her former co-host... Oh @carolynmanno I love you even more now. #canonizeher — Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) September 25, 2013 This will be my favorite tweet of the night. #heehee pic.twitter.com/VvqU2wO38k — Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) September 26, 2013 Oops. Had to take it down. In the immortal words of Motörhead...time to play the game. — Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) September 26, 2013 I promised my agent I'd shut it down for the night. But before I go...talentless hacks come in all shapes and sizes. Remember that. Night! — Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) September 26, 2013 And you thought intracompany Twitter feuding was only a Bill Simmons thing!  God speed NBC Sports PR.  It'd be great if Beadle calling Briggs a "talentless hack" was a trending topic on Sports Dash tomorrow afternoon.  Now that would draw viewers to NBCSN!  Let's get on that, America. Things are going to get really awkward at the next NBC Sports family picnic in Stamford, CT aren't they?
